I got a new project! a 1965 Notchback. This is the oldest car that i own, and i will have a lot of questions.
My Other type 3 is my neglected 68 fasty that i took to the 1st invasion, so i have been a long time lurker here.

Here it is on a trailer coming to its new home :  https://imgur.com/gallery/4FpFeb6 It has been sitting , last registered in 1989.  My first order of business is going to be redoing the brakes, then engine & suspension.

What rubber brake lines should i order?  I was looking at ispwest but i couldn't find the exact ones i need.

Are the rear ones the same through out the years 64-68 (swing-axle) ? What about the fronts ?

Can I or should I upgrade to a dual circuit Master cylinder ? In the future i'm going to be putting wide 5 disks up front.

Where can i find the backspacing info for wheels? I want to get some custom widened stealies but the few people who make them , make them for T1s.
